Atlas Bar


Like gin? Then make haste for Singapore’s recently renovated Atlas Bar, which features about 1,000 varieties of the spirit, some dating to 1910. The 7,400-sq.-ft. facility, set in Singapore’s Gothic-looking Parkview Square office tower, is an Art Deco throwback—The Great Gatsby as conceived by the Hong Kong property mogul C.S. Hwang. His granddaughter Vicky says that the refurbishments were “intimidating,” but the hard work appears to have paid off. The Atlas now occupies the No. 15 slot on this year’s World’s 50 Best Bars List, helped in no small measure by its gin collection, which is one of the world’s largest. “We wanted to be a center of excellence for gin,” Hwang says. “A place where those who were gin enthusiasts or simply gin-curious could come, enjoy and learn a bit more.” —Suyin Haynes
